300 to go!
The Best Coffees
Coffees can come from anywhere and be roasted by anyone, but they have to be extremely special in some way. I might pick a coffee for it’s unique, crazy flavours, because it’s a great example of a particular region or variety, or it represents a new and interesting processing method. Maybe it just won a medal at the World Brewers cup. Anything goes!
I’ll only send you coffees that are roasted specifically for filter brewing methods. No dark espresso roasts, but also nothing underdeveloped and green. Sweetness, acidity, and complexity are the goal.
Packed Into Envelopes
We seal each coffee into a valved bag, inside a flat A4 envelope. Depending on the rarity and cost of the coffee you’ll get between 60 and 100 grams, but the price will always stay the same. For example: 100g of a Kenyan, or 60g of a crazy auction winning Geisha. Enough to properly experience a coffee, and maybe one to share with a friend.
Envelopes are much smaller than boxes, and 100g is much lighter than the usual 250g. Because of this, shipping costs the same no matter where you are in the world: zero.
I’ve found optimum carriers for every location including Hong Kong Post E-express and SwissPost RAM. All envelopes have tracking numbers and should arrive in any country well before the end of the month (pending customs delays).
Once a Month
Subscriptions will all be processed together, on the 1st day of each month. I’ll send the coffee out during the 1st week, and you should receive it well before the end of the month. You can pause, cancel, or modify your subscription at any time up until the last day of the month.
Conscience is Covered
With each envelope, I’ll send $1 to a coffee-related cause. Whoever is supplying or roasting the coffee gets to choose how the money will be spent: a project towards the community where the coffee came from, or a well known not-for-profit. Causes will be thoroughly vetted for effectiveness.
Shipping from the roastery to you will also be completely offset with carbon credits.
Community is Everything
You’ll be enjoying coffee alongside the Barista Hustle community of mindful and progressive coffee professionals and enthusiasts. I’ve put aside spaces for us to share our brewing experiences and tips, and will be encouraging the roasters, producers, and the people who made each coffee happen to be in there as well.

Is this just for Baristas?
No. Anyone can enjoy the Subscription. I encourage curious consumers, home baristas, and anyone who enjoys coffee to get on board!
Is it tax deductible?
If you’re a coffee professional, then most likely yes!
Why not 250 grams or a pound?
I need to stay within the weight limits for international air-mail. This weight range is optimum for making the shipping free for you. Also, these coffees can be really expensive, so I’m trying to make them much more accessible for the international community. I feel that 60-100g (5-8 cups) is enough to taste and enjoy a special coffee (and maybe share one with a friend) without breaking the bank.
Why does the weight change?
I didn’t want to lock this subscription into one price point, so we can explore a truly wide range of coffees together. You’ll get 100g when the coffee costs less, 60g if it’s super expensive and rare, and 80g if it’s somewhere in-between. This way I have less incentive to choose cheaper coffees because my margin will always stay the same, and I have more incentive to find the truly life-changing coffees to keep you happy and interested!
What’s the coffee?
You’ll have to trust me. Once orders are in, I’ll send out the envelopes and announce what’s inside. If you live close to the roastery and may have had it before, I’ll give you a heads up and the option to pass.
Do I get a tracking number?
Yes! It will be emailed to you once the fulfilment company has shipped the envelopes.
How fast is shipping?
Every destination has a range of 3-16 working days. Most countries will be at the lower end of the spectrum, with the less-traveled routes seeing longer times. Customs might make this longer, and I unfortunately can’t help it.
When will you ship?
We will ship in the 1st week of each month.
What about customs and taxes?
It’s your responsibility to ensure that your country doesn’t prohibit or tax the import of this product, and to make arrangements/payments if they do. Every envelope will have a customs declaration form with “Roasted Coffee. Value: USD$10” written on it.

Last month’s coffee?
Ninety Plus’ Juliette Gesha from Panama!
Here’s what people had to say:
At SFCB we sell wonderful coffee and coffee brewing stuff. BUT this post is a big thankyou for @mattperger from @sensory_lab for the effort he has gone to to establish a truly unique offering, and all for the love of coffee! We are talking about his Barista Hustle Wiki, and more specifically the worldwide delivery of truly special coffees aptly called Superlatives – micro amounts of coffee from micro lots! Superlatives will send you 100g of coffee a month and we just enjoyed first taste of the first shipment; Juliette Panama Gesha from @ninetypluscoffee estates. Of course it was wonderful. So it's not enough to be rolling around in Gesha every day like some weird coffee-angel, but if you want something rare and unique to enjoy in small amounts alongside your regular brews, we encourage you to check it out! #baristahustle #superlatives #gesha #geshacoffee #geisha #geishacoffee #singleorigin #coffeeporn #melbournecoffee #juliette #ninetypluscoffee #coffeegeek #panamacoffee #shopforcoffeebeans #coffeesubscription #coffeelover #specialtycoffee #aeropress #porlexgrinder #delicious #special #yummy
